Friday 23 December 2016

Waxwings were back in the news with 17 on Seamer Road outside Pets At Home and Brantano, not just catching up with some shopping this was definitely the crowd before the Boxing Day sales. Also 8 were reported outside Grip Cycles, Dunslow Road in Eastfield today.

The Black-necked Grebe remained in the Outer Harbour, the Red-throated Diver was still in Peasholm Park but was looking rather unwell, North Bay held a Red-throated Diver plus 2 Common Scoter and in South Bay there were 2 Red-throated Divers.

On Harwood Dale Lake there was a Pintail and 3 Goosander, at Staintondale a single Raven was seen and at Seamer Tip pool there were 9 White-fronted Geese.

Elsewhere at Deepdale there was a Woodcock and 2 Crossbills, c70 Redpolls at Staindale, 3 Grey Plovers in Cornelian Bay and 7 Mediterranean Gulls (6 ads and 1 2nd winter) at Holbeck.

I can never resist a nice Waxwing photo so here's one from today.
